The flag is low in After School’s playground today — the band is about to say farewell to their leader.
After sources told a Korean tabloid today that Jung Ah has reached the end of her contract, a Pledis Entertainment rep confirms to IdolWow!: “Jung Ah’s contract with the agency has ended, and she naturally she has graduated the team… She will focus on solo activities.”
Further details were scarce, but the spokesman continues, “Currently, the company is discussing After School’s activities with the other members.”
In a separate statement, the company added, “Rather than renewing the contract it was decided that we would part ways with mutual blessings for one another’s futures.”
